Yeah ... nearly forgot what brought me to this entertaining thread in the first place. And, yes, you got lucky (so far as you can tell )-;~Just read through this entire thread. Wow! What a story. I have 11 chickens, from three different places at different times and didn't follow quarantine protocol or anything so I'm counting myself lucky. I will definitely be much more careful if I add more this spring! If? Who am I kidding....WHEN.
Same problem here -- the word "if" really doesn't have much use, when it comes to my ignoring good logic as to the number of birds I'll likely end up w/ on this farm.
